OUR TWO WINGS

The mystical life is a matter of learning to live with the certainty that the Whole is unknowable. When we learn to bow before that consummate fact we can live in bliss.

Bliss comes via two means, from the harmonious beating of two wings. The first is developing a sense of permanent connectedness to the Whole. The second is gradually realizing that all particulars – a rose, a bird a cloud – are pointers to, and proof of, the Whole to which they, and we, belong.

The rest is focusing this spirit into service of others.

The two wings enable what all versions of the life spiritual are about – AWAKENING: DETACHMENT: SERVICE

Celebrating this from the lives and teaching of great teachers is what the One Garden is about (RP)
